Remove the flywheel with a wheel puller. Then adjust, or better yet, replace the points. Then reinstall the flywheel.

When I try to start my 60" Ariens rider all I get is a loud clattering sound. I just replaced the battery 2 months ago. What's wrong with my mower?


Joel, Recheck battery to make sure it has good charge >12 v and all battery and starter wiring,plugs,connections are clean,tight and undamaged. If you remove spark plug and engine spins freely from the key, the engine compression release or valve clearance needs adjusted. It is probable the solenoid or starter is faulty, the starter Bendix/drive may be sticking. If you can, give the starter a couple sharp raps with a hammer or bar and then try to start.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides to help diagnose starting issue. Good luck

Can the overhead valves on a 16hp sears craftsman with a kohler engine be the reason why it won't start and if so, can I adjust them


Valve clearances will also effect the decompression valve in the engine, if they are too wide the valve lifter will not work and the battary will not have enough energy to crack the engine.

Kohler 149 cc engine won't start seems to be getting no fuel


This may not fix your problem but it does deal with that engine. I just tried to replace the spark plug in that engine and it took me 5 hours. The Kohler plug in the engine that came from the factory cannot be found in traditional stores and it is a strange size, 11/16 or 12 mm. The Kohler plug is #1413211. I could not find a match in a book. Divine intervention lead me to a place where they were fixing the Kohler 149cc engine that had the same plug in it that mines did. I discovered that a Champion 8815 does fit the engine but it takes a 18mm socket. It did fix the problem and the mower works. Hopefully this will save someone my hassles.

The starter won't completely turn over even though


Sometimes on the Briggs and Kohler engines, the compression release fails to operate at the proper time or is malfunctioning. A remedy for this is to remove the valve cover(s) and adjust the OH valves per the manufacturers specifications. This enables much easier starting, produces less wear and tear on the starter and may allow your new battery to completely turn that engine over. Out of adjustment valves mimic a weak or failing battery quite well and the engine hangs up on the compression stroke because the compression release system is not working properly. Adjust those darn valves.

When it shuts down crack the fuel cap and listen for the woosh of a vacuum on the fuel tank. If you hear this, clean the pinhole vent in the fuel cap, or replace it. Being partially plugged would cause you to be starved for fuel and could explain your issue, and why it goes away after a period of time.
